RCRA Hazardous Waste Generator Refresher Training course is designed for individuals seeking training and recertification for work in compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations 40 CFR Part 261 and 40 CFR Part 262 under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) of 1976 for handling and management of hazardous waste.
The Hazardous Waste Generator Regulations enforced by the EPA ensure the proper identification and safe handling of hazardous waste to safeguard human health and the environment, while minimizing disruptions to regular business activities.
The EPA requires training for personnel engaged in hazardous waste management and handling operations to familiarize them with proper management and emergency procedures for the wastes handled at their facilities. Initial training must be provided to personnel within six months of employment or a change in job position. Retraining must be provided to personnel on an annual basis.
The RCRA Hazardous Waste Generator Refresher Training course is suitable for hazardous waste generators; supervisors; owners and operators of treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs); hazardous waste contractors, environmental compliance specialists, and many others.

A Final Note
It is important to remember that attending a training course on its own will not make a worker competent. Competence is developed over time by implementing the knowledge acquired through a training course to on-the-job work processes. Therefore, in addition to this online course it is important that you receive additional on-site training from your employer.
As an employer, do you want to train your employees as a team? Do your employees want to learn from a qualified instructor?

RCRA stands for the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. According to the EPA, “RCRA is a combination of the first federal solid waste statutes and all subsequent amendments”. It is a set of laws and regulations governed by the EPA and developed to describe the waste management program mandated by Congress. Hence, the RCRA is in effect a framework used by the EPA “for the proper management of hazardous and non-hazardous solid waste”.
